The EACH Foundation Studio Artist Residency aims to support artists by providing free studio space, exhibition opportunity and exposure to the public for one year. Candidates should live in Marin, or have significant ties to Marin, and can commit to regularly using the studio and participating in the program activities for one year.

Art Works Downtown offers a diverse mix of studio artists and mediums in the heart of the San Rafael commercial core for almost daily interaction with the public. The EACH Foundation Studio is a tiny studio located in the lower-level of the AWD complex.
